What repairs should I do before putting my home up for sale?

It doesn’t make sense to spend a bunch of money on repairs if you’re not going to see the return right? Having said that, there are many very inexpensive repairs that will go a long way. First you want to make sure the entrance of your home looks great – first impressions go a long way. Paint your front door and remove or replace the screen door if it’s seen better days. If your roof is mossy, clean it and replace any missing or damaged shingles – both of those items will come up during the buyers inspection and you’ll likely end up having to do that anyway. Make sure your gutters are hanging straight and aren’t overflowing with gunk. Inside your home, fix any holes in the walls and repaint. If you have damaged vinyl flooring replace it. You’ll spend a little money there but it will be worth it. Make sure all the trim and baseboards are in good shape. And last but not least, if your carpet is dirty and stained, shampoo it. If it’s stretched out have someone come in and fix it. And if it’s in really bad shape sometimes it makes sense to replace it. If you’re uncertain about what to do, have us come out and take a look at your home first. We’ll let you know what repairs should be done to get the maximum return on your investment.
